The Family Reunion was short-listed for a National Book Award.

"The Family Reunion is surely one of the most notable novels written by a South African and how magisterially she goes to work in it... something even Nabokov could be proud of... lively, too – plastic, moving and a virtuoso." — André Brink

"A contemporary work of ageless eloquence...wise and moving." — Thomas Berger

"The book is a stiletto" — Thomas E. Blackburn, National Catholic Reporter

"As tight a tale as I have read in a long times..." — Sylvia Rothschild, Jewish Advocate

"Witty, ominous...exquisitely ironical" — Patricia Goldman, Newton Times

"Its saga is brilliantly written and executed" — Sigmund A. Lavine, Worcester Telegram

A novel of a caliber that one does not often meet…Best book of the year.” — Andre P. Brink

A compassion for all of us rings through…this rare book.” — Adeline Naiman, Boston Globe
